Beautiful course in a nicely maintained park
Pros: So many great updates since I started playing this course! Expansion from 9 to 18 holes. All the main tees are pavers and alts are flypads. Very well maintained and great signage. Good variety of open and wooded holes. Many of the open holes have well placed baskets near trees and OB that help keep the course interesting. A hanging basket and raised basket are also great features.
Cons: The only con I have is when there are multiple basket placements, like on hole 1, an indicator of which location it is in would be helpful
Other Thoughts: Formally a property of the Rockefeller family, this is a beautiful park with many non-disc golf activities as well. Some may not always know a course is there, so be mindful of patrons in the area before letting your plastic fly.

Pros: OCP is a great course for all skill levels. It has great paver tee pads, it's well maintained, has great Innova Disc Catcher baskets, and some beautiful shots. The course has recently become a full 18 hole course from a 9 hole course. Recently they have moved a few pins making the course different each time you play. Ocp has 2 leagues. 1 in spring and 1 in fall. It is an overall great club and a great course. Go & Throw!

One of the best in NJ

Pros: Awesome mix of throws, obstacles, and lengths.
Challenging for beginners and intermediate players.
Great for working on different types of approaches/new throws because of a lot of open fairways.
Always well-kept and a very nice park.
Cons: Some holes don't have the best throwing routes.
Driving a car in the area can be a little frustrating on Sundays...
Other Thoughts: I enjoy the open field, long holes for big drives. The mix of technical, tight shots and long, big-arm drives is awesome.

Pros: Lots of long holes for huge drives.
Interesting pin placements.
Gorgeous views during your walk.
Holes not crowded with trees for me to bounce off.
Cons: None for me.
Other Thoughts: I would love to see more holes as this is a huge area with tons of room for more. I didn't see the extra "woods" holes others talked about, but I wish I had. I also wish I had more time to stay and play this course over and over!

Pros: This is a beautiful course, with a nice flowing layout. It's got several challenging holes, with some having long distances, others having water hazards, and tricky basket placement. The surrounding landscape is really nice, too.
Cons: It's only 9 holes. Hopefully the good people who made this course, can expand it in the future. Until then, I'll just play it twice, or three times.
Other Thoughts: Now I'm off to work on getting more distance from my drive. See you out there.

The First Course in Ocean County
5 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Newly constructed course that is now 18 holes with dual tee pads at 11 of them in beautiful Ocean County Park in Lakewood, NJ. Primarily open course with a few peeks into the woods and mature trees scattered throughout. Nice Innova Disc Catcher baskets. Good sized, 5 x 10 tee pads with paver surfacing (main tees) and fly pads on most alternates, Good distance and hole variety which should appeal to all skill levels. Features a hanging basket and an elevated basket. Water and pavement OB areas come into play and challenge players on several holes. Navigation is pretty easy with very visible "next tee" signs near each basket. Excellent permanent signs now featured at all 18 holes. Each hole has large log benches. Amenities like bathrooms, picnic areas and water fountains are on the premises. A "lost disc" box, plastic bag dispenser, scorecard box and welcome kiosk greet visitors at hole 1, which has been nicely landscaped and enclosed. Park grounds are impeccably maintained.
Cons: Due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, the cutting of live trees was prohibited during construction, thus more wooded holes were not designed. Pedestrians and park patrons will be a factor from time to time when playing. Area high schools use part of the grounds for Cross Country. Not much elevation- welcome to the Jersey Shore. A few low lying areas collect water after heavy rain. Geese droppings can a bit of a nuisance. Wind can be a big factor here.
Other Thoughts: The Ocean County Park disc golf course represents years of hard work and commitment in providing a sorely needed, quality course to the Jersey Shore area. This is a really nice playing experience here, and the local following is tremendous. Many people are responsible for the outstanding level of care that has gone into the course, and park officials have been easy to work with and very supportive. The remaining paver tee pads will be installed shortly, secondary basket placements on a few holes and bag pole installation are all in the works. Come to the Jersey Shore, hit the beach in Point Pleasant and drive 15 minutes inland to OCP for a couple rounds of disc golf!!
